Each year, the Department of Education and Training graduate cohort chooses a charity that they wish to fundraise for over the year of their graduate program. This year, the grads have selected YouthCARE Canberra! They’ve wasted no time in getting the ball rolling, raising $1,500 through a bake sale and a ‘Guess the number of easter eggs in the jar’ competition. Many of the grads put their baking and cooking skills to the test and the result was a fantastic array of sweet and savoury options available for purchase in the foyer for a mid-morning snack or late breakfast. The graduates have a number of other fundraising initiatives planned for this year, with a Mother’s Day stall, raffles, and a trivia night on the cards.
